NDDC board sets new world record of embezzlement after embezzling N81 billion in 4 months

This has to be one of the worst records and it speaks volumes about the alarming level of corruption in our dear country.

It is so sad that those saddled with the responsibility of serving the nation have prioritized their personal gains over service to humanity.

According to a report by Sahara Reporters, the members of the National Assembly have uncovered how the NDDC board embezzled a whopping N81.5 Billion between February 2020 to May 2020.

The report has it that this huge amount of money left the NDDC's account within this period under review without due process.

This is huge and shocking, corruption may remain in Nigeria for a longer period as long as we continue having these crop of leaders.

Imagine if such an amount of money was judiciously used in serving the people of Niger Delta, surely it would have gone a long way.

Every day, people in the Niger Delta complain about a lack of federal government's presence and impact in their region not knowing that their actual enemies are the very leaders sent to represent them.

This is flummoxing and indeed it is a new world record of embezzlement.

Even some people are attesting to this fact, see fa few comments below

The sting of corruption may leave a big scar in the loves of the people of the Niger Delta region. How do we explain this to our children?

It is so disheartening, a whole N81.5 billion embezzled within a few months.

This explains why their last meeting with the Senate ended in disarray when they couldn't explain or provide accurate details with regards to their expenditures, their budget defense was a show of shame when they failed to account for a shortfall of N143 billion in its 2019 budget.

What do you have to say to this? Let us hear your thoughts via comments below and please share this post.
